Dynasty Dynamics: AFL Progress Reports, Part I

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

The risers and fallers down in the desert.

It’s been a bit since we brought you a prospect progress report, but with postseason play entering its final week and the Arizona Fall League earning more of the spotlight going forward, we thought we’d take a look at some players who got off to interesting starts. This isn’t necessarily just a check in on box-score stars, but rather players who have dynasty value and have seen that value shift one way or the other over the course of the season, and who will be worth keeping tabs on throughout the AFL.

Son of Raul has a chance to make his major-league debut in the golldarned World Series.

The Situation: The Royals are seeking some additional flexibility at the end of their World Series roster, and Raul Adalberto Mondesi will provide the middle-infield depth that Terrance Gore cannot, while still offering speed to burn as a pinch-runner.

Background: Signed for $2 million in 2011, Mondesi has made impressive strides while being aggressively challenged his entire career as a professional. While he’s spent a full season in each level at which he’s played, Mondesi was always one of the younger players at his levels, and he hadn’t faced a pitcher younger than him until this season at Double-A. While he’s made believers out of many with his glove, speed and arm, the aggressive schedule designed by Kansas City has left his offensive future cloudy with no chance of bases on balls. But viewing his production through the lens of age relative to level, merely surviving is a success, and he has done that—if just.

Stolen bases are down across the league, so where can fantasy owners turn to find swipes for their squads?

There were 2,505 stolen bases last season. Sounds like a lot, right?

Dynasty Dynamics: Position-Player Rebound Candidates

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

These 10 hitters could see their values tick back up next season.

Let’s be honest. If you’re reading this column you’re probably not in the playoffs, and if you somehow are the best advice on what to do from here on out is probably ¯_(ツ)_/¯. That’s right, it’s September 2015 and we’re still shruggy-ing. Anyway, since you’re looking towards next year, we thought we might do the same by highlighting 10 players that you might want to target heading into the offseason. For the most part, these are well-known quantities who had down seasons, and could/should see a rebound. We attempted to vary the quality of player for the difference in league depth that our various readers encounter, but there aren’t any unknowns, to be certain. We covered position players in this iteration, and will be back at the end of the month with some pitching options.

Dynasty Dynamics: Discussing the Top Five Second Basemen

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

The cream of the present-and-future crop at the keystone.

In our last Dynasty Dynamics, Craig and I broke down the top four dynasty third basemen and came to a rough consensus as to how they should be ranked heading into 2016. Because we’re incapable of producing original column ideas more than twice a year, we’ll now do the same thing with second basemen. Enjoy!
